Due to mild spring weather, the Boston Common Frog Pond Carousel will be opening on Saturday, April 6, at 10 a.m., a week earlier than scheduled
Now in its second year of operation at its location adjacent to the Frog Pond, the Carousel is an American masterpiece built by the Chance Morgan Ride Company of Wichita, Kansas.
An oak floor, beveled glass mirrors, and a standard pie top with a lighted crown all give the Carousel a classic style. The Carousel features a variety of Bradley and Kaye horses, wildlife figures, and a chariot. It was named one of “America’s Best Carousels” by Travel and Leisure in May of 2012.
Throughout the season, the Carousel will operate Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $3 for a single ride or $25 for a 10-ride pass.
Individuals of all ages are encouraged to take advantage of this handicapped accessible attraction. Anyone under 42 inches must be accompanied by an adult.
The Boston Common Frog Pond is managed through a public-private partnership between The Skating Club of Boston and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department. The partnership’s mission is to manage the Frog Pond for the benefit of Bostonians and visitors, and to provide recreational activities year-round at a customer-friendly destination in the heart of America’s oldest public park.
